    Thanks PB! Not too bad for someone who could barely lift the same tire 3 months ago. Glad to have ya here.

  10. THURS

    Front Squat
    45x10
    70x10
    80x10
    80x10*snatch grip
    80x10*snatch grip
    90x10

    Back Squat
    90x10
    100x10
    100x10
    100x10

    Foot Elevated Lunge (20lb bar) w/Wall Sit (SS)
    10 x 30sec
    10 x 30sec

    Up Downs - 5 rounds, 1 minute rest
    8,8,8,8,8 = 40 total

    Note: Felt a bit bloated & gassy after taking Focus XT today. Not sure why, but that's the first time that's happened.

    Does anyone else's shoulders get really fatigued during front squats? I have to switch grips and often times it's my shoulders that want to give out before my legs do. High rep squats finished. 100 reps total. Hips were good today. Last set of front squats were not pretty. Took multiple breaths between each rep as I got closer to 10. For back squats I focused on keeping my chest up for every rep and I think I succeeded there. Last set was hard. Re-racked the bar after 2 reps because my foot position was off and left hammie felt tight out of the hole. Walked away for a few minutes, came back and finished the rest of the set with no probs. Switched jump rope finisher with up downs. Hated my life for about 5 minutes. Tonight's dinner will be homemade pizza with a side of Glycophase.

    Yes! It sucks when my delts start to fatigue and then the elbows want to drop. I've been doing shoulder, thoracic spine, and tricep mobility band/foam work before front squatting and that helps to loosen up the upper body.

  18. You're gonna be cursing steps for a few days and if you drop a pen on the ground, it may take a while to get down to get it...! ;-)

  19. FRI

    1 scoop Focus XT

    BB Push Press
    30x5
    40x5

    50x5
    55x1
    60x1

    DB Single Arm Hang Clean + Split Jerk
    15x10
    15x10
    20x10
    25x5

    DB Bent over fly

    DB 6 ways
    2x10

    Seated DB Press + Spider wall crawls (ss)
    10 x 30 sec
    10 x 30 sec
    10 x 30 sec

    RB Tri Pushdowns
    3x15

    Jump Rope Skip + Jump Jacks (ss)
    2 min + 30
    2 min + 30
    2 min + 30

    Today's workout was stellar. Tied an old PR on Push Press. Attempted 65lbs but the hardest part for me is getting it past my chin. If I can do that the press is easy, but that's my sticking point. Also went up +5lbs on DB Single Arm Hang Clean. Heaviest I've gone with those and def a goal of mine to be able to use 30's. Fininshed with superset cardio and started getting a stitch in my lower abdomen, lol, I suck at cardio. Hopefully tomorrow my hips will be good to go for Sumo DL.

    Oh yes, both mentally and physically. Eating carbs is fun! Still keeping the bulk of my carbs pre and post workout with glycophase. Thank you for asking! (you should see it)

  23. Post w/o foods. Just what the doc ordered. Steak, sauteed peppers and pepperjack cheese burrito!

  24. Great looking meals! How is glycophase doing as far as partitioning goes?

  25. Quote Originally Posted by 804 View Post

    In the past when the scale would increase over night after exhaustive efforts I'd kind of freak out. That lead me to lower cals dramatically, carb deplete, sodium deplete, etc. Feel like crap. Still not lose weight. Rinse and repeat. For reference I had been eating ~1500 calories with under 50g carbs a lot of days during the week. Right now I'm up to 1800 calories with ~110g carbs. That means I am eating higher carbs, more calories, and maintaining +/- 0.5 lbs. Sweet.

    Could it be that I am tolerating carbs better since slowly increasing them weekly? Perhaps my body is starting to burn them off instead of storing it as fat? Possibly. I'm still gauging results and tweaking macros daily and weekly. Keep in mind the bulk of my carb sources come from whole wheat pasta, rice cakes, greek yogurt, fiber one cereal, high fiber wraps and some fruit. I'm having just enough carbs but not so much that it's spilling over into carbicide territory. It would be interesting to hear from people who have had experience with GDA's that normally follow higher carb diets.

    Dosing/Eating schedule:

    1st meal: fats/protein
    2nd meal (pre-wo): carbs/protein + glycophase
    3rd meal: (post-wo): carbs/protein
    4th meal: carbs/protein + glycophase
    5th meal: fats/protein

    I've experienced what felt like hypoglycemia (slight dizzy spell, nausea, urgency to eat) once early on due to my miscalculation of carbs pre-wo. As far as muscle pumps, I don't go chasing those, but have noticed more fullness in my upper arms/biceps. Number of times I workout biceps during the week: 0. Right now I feel the effectiveness of Glycophase really shines in helping keep the bloat down after higher carb meals.

    Good question!
